I have lived in the Chicago area all my life. It's a good place to live overall, but I don't like the climate and probably will not choose to retire here. Schaumburg, IL is however a good place to raise a family. I work for a major airline at O'Hare International Airport. I work outdoors, and the long cold winters and hot humid summers are hard to cope with.

Schaumburg, IL

Schaumburg, IL General livability - 4/24/2013
Nice middle-class community. Excellent schools. Excellent variety in retail establishments. Very good park district with plentiful activities, classes, and three outdoor pools/water parks and one indoor pool/water park. Low crime rate. Very safe community. Very populous are with about 70,000 residents. Traffic can be a challenge especially at rush hour and on weekends. Cost of living is quite high, but affordable with a family income of $75,000 to $100,000. Climate leaves something to be desired. Long, cold winters and hot humid summers. Proximity to Chicago makes employment and cultural activities easily accessible. Public transportation is not particularly plentiful. A car is a must.
